A transcript of the segment, which aired on Hollywood's Biggest Night: The Road to Gold on February 24 at 7:04 p.m. EST, is as follows:

PIERS MORGAN: Do you still get starstruck? Do even somebody of your magnitude see someone and go 'wow'?

DUSTIN HOFFMAN: I feel extraordinary talking to you!


HOFFMAN: And God bless you for what you're saying about gun control.

MORGAN: Thank you. Thank you. I hope to lure you on to my show some time. You prove rather elusive.
